Mark Hamill fondly remembered his longtime co-star and friend, Carrie Fisher, on what would have been her 66th birthday.

Fisher was born on October 21, 1956, and passed away on December 27, 2016. She was flying from London to the U.S. when she suffered cardiac arrest aboard the flight and died days later.

Hamill has his unique way of wishing his Star Wars co-actors on their birthdays. He posted one recent followed by three adorable throwback pictures from their filming days to wish Fisher this year.

Hamill captioned the post with “For Carrie”.

Even 6 years after her demise, Fisher continues to inspire an entire generation of Star Wars storytellers, actors, and fans.

Carry Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, who played Lieutenant Connix in the sequels, posted an emotional tribute to her on social media:

"“My Momby would have been 66 today. I woke up this morning feeling like I should write some long wise grief advice caption like I know what the fuck I’m talking about. But then I realized even after 6 years I still have no formula or map on what to do on days like these. You can never be an expert in grief. It is forever changing – the ultimate shape shifter. And you never feel like you know exactly what to do or feel. And that’s okay. Whatever you feel is okay. Sending my love to all the griefers (yet another billie lourd petition to make this a real word) out there. You are not alone. ❤️”"

Carrie Fisher last appeared as Leia Organa in The Rise of Skywalker, in which her scenes were digitally created using old unused footages and VFX.

Following the screening of The Last Jedi a year after her death, Mark Hamill shared with ExtraTV’s Renee Bargh how it was like to witness the Star Wars franchise without her.

"“She’s wonderful in the movie. It just hit me really hard, because, I’d seen her periodically over the years but this was the first time we were spending an extended period of time together and there was a comfort level after all these years… I’ll never stop missing her, but I’m just grateful we had her for as long as we did.”"
